the steps that i can follow..rasenye.. =)



Take the stairs, not the elevator
You probably have heard this one before, but did you give it a try? A good friend of mine lost 15 pounds in a few weeks by just taking the stairs in his apartment building. Depending on the intensity, you will be losing approximately 300 calories for 30 minutes of taking the stairs and you will be improving your heart condition at the same time. Just make sure the stair case you are taking is safe, clean, well illuminated and ventilated to make it a pleasant experience.


Avoid the middle of the grocery store

That’s where all of the processed foods are. Instead, try to stick to the edges of the grocery store, where the fresh produce, whole grains, and dairy are. I personally love the flower displays and fruit and vegetable sections by the entrance. Fill your shopping cart there and you won’t feel like you need to put more stuff into your cart when approaching the middle aisles. This way you will be able to stock on healthy foods with least caloriesthat will make it easy to lose weight fast

Keep a food journal

Making notes in a small notebook or in your phone to record everything you eat and drink during the day would be a great way to control what you are having on a regular basis. Try it for a week and review your notes. You’ll be able to clearly see all the healthy choices you made and all the things you still need to work on next week to keep losing weight. Not sure where to start? See these awesome tips for keeping a food journal.



Learn what a serving size is

Another important thing is to know how much food a normal size serving is. A serving of meat or fish should be about the size of a deck of cards. A serving of almost everything else ought to fit in the palm of your hand. And most importantly, if you feel full, do not make yourself eat up everything you have left on your plate. Listen to your body and you will know when it’s the right time to stop.

Be easy on bread

It’s best to avoid bread altogether, but if you necessarily must have some, opt for wholegrain bread, rather than processed white bread. It has fiber and it has way less calories. And it tastes better too! It might take some time to start eating less bread, but once you do, you’ll see that this is probably one of the most effective and fastest ways to loseweight.

Soda alert

It will be perfect for your weight loss if you stop drinking soda altogether and substitute it with water. However, it’s not an easy habit to break. So if you absolutely can not live without your favorite soda, at least switch to diet or zero-calorie and try to have less of it. Assuming you drink 16 ounces per day, you’ll save more than 43,000 calories a year by ditching the soda and that will be a big improvement for your weight loss progress.

Drink plenty of water, especially if you feel hungry

If you feel hungry, you may actually be thirsty, as at first, thirst is translated as hunger in our brains. So try drinking a little water and in a few minutes see if you are still hungry before you indulge in a snack. Drinking plenty of water in general is very beneficial to your health and drinking water can help you lose weight faster. See the ways water helps you lose weight to know more.

Get up and move during the day

If you’re stuck at a desk all day long, take a few 10-minute breaks to walk around, climb some stairs, or even sneak in a little yoga. Find a colleague who also wants to lose weight and do these little things together. Get some ideas from 7 Exercises You Can Do Sitting Down and use this fast way to lose weight on a regular basis!



Sneak in a little exercise every day, even when at work

This would be one of the fastest ways to lose weight out there. If you are busy at work and can hardly squeeze in any time for a proper workout, try doing these great exercises not leaving your table. 10 minutes of these a day and in a few weeks you will find your muscles more toned and fat melting away.

Dance!

Dance!

Dance as often as you can. I know, for some of us it’s better to do this with our doors closed, and so be it! Just put on your favorite album and bring on those moves! Not only dancing will be helping you lose weight fast, it will also help you bring down stress levels and improve your coordination and flexibility. Now, that’s a win-win all around!

Do not give up

Every person who has ever tried to lose weight can tell you that no matter how much you want to achieve your weight goal, there will be a moment (or even moments), when you feel like giving up. It can be a physical problem, like catching a cold, or an emotional one, like running into your ex and his new girlfriend. But whichever that is, the only way to get through this is to give yourself a little time to be upset and then and only then get back to doing what you have been doing to lose weight fast. Don’t think it’s all over because you missed 3 yoga classes, jump right back in where you left off and losing that extra weight you have will be easier and faster than you think!

Do not starve yourself

This is a common mistake many of us do, when trying to find a way to lose weight. I’ve been there and from my personal experience I can say that skipping meals in order to lose weight is not working. First of all, it’s very hard and distracting, as you can not stop thinking about food, and second of all, the few pounds I managed to lose came back in abundance the week I started eating normally. The thing is, starving ourselves puts our bodies in a “starvation mode” which basically means the body is trying to reserve the very same fat that we are trying to burn off. And don’t forget what a toll it takes on your overall health and your metabolism… 

Walk or ride a bike

Walk or ride a bike instead of taking the car. If you live in a place that allows either one, you’ll be able to have the best time just walking or riding your bike while burning off calories and improving your heart and muscles. You’ll also be saving fuel money and money for the parking, which in some cities might be so expensive!

Keep busy

If you live by yourself and you have lots of free time on your hands, try to occupy yourself as much as you can and preferably, try to stay out of the house. It might be something worthy or fun, like helping in a local animal shelter, or going to the mall with your friends, or treating yourself to a professional mani-pedi. Whichever you choose will serve your weight loss well. When you are busy, your mind does not wonder and the chances that you will make a trip or two to the fridge for an off-schedule snack are going way down. And just think of all the calories you will be burning with all these activities! A definite must-try way to lose weight fast!

Fall in love

Falling in love often helps to lose weight. So, if you are single at the moment, do not wait for your body to become picture perfect before actually hitting the dating scene. Start looking already, nothing helps with appetite more than anticipation of your first date and first kiss. And when you find someone you really like, you’ll see how much less you will be thinking about food and how your clothes will become more loose in just a matter of weeks!
